Saturday was hot, in fact this whole week is hot. Really hot. Many of my regular readers will know but for those new wild folks my PoTS causes a lot of issues with temperature regulation, as a result I’m pretty heat intolerant. It makes doing almost anything a huge challenge. This whole heat wave has…Continue reading Day 17 of #30DaysWild – Empty feeders & Starling Silhouette Photos
Nearly up to date! Yesterday was day 16 of 30 Days Wild and it’s all about wild flowers. A LOT of yesterday was spent in the garden. This heat wave is hard going for my PoTS but it’s fantastic for getting paint dry so I’m getting loads of furniture painted. While hanging out in the…Continue reading Day 16 of #30DaysWild – Wild Flowers
Gradually catching up. Here goes day 15. My day was spent doing much the same as the last few days. The only slight change was heading back to the family home for this months #HMSALiveOT. Every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm I spend an house live streaming on for the Hypermobility Syndromes Association…Continue reading Day 15 of #30DaysWild – House Martins & Starlings at Sunset
Wow I’m behind with this. Ok so wednesday was more house sorting. I spent the day pottering around the house organising things and painting furniture. I also removed some of the spiders that seem to think the house belongs to them! As we spend more time in the garden and the bird feeders become more…Continue reading Day 14 of #30DaysWild – Garden Birds
Once again a day behind but here goes. I’m going to start with a summary of our new home and garden. We’re based on the Ravenswood estate in the south-east of Ipswich. The house is a large two bedroom, mid-terrace with well-proportioned but irregular shaped rooms. The house is the middle bit of a terrace…Continue reading Day 13 of #30DaysWild – Intro to the new home.
A day late but no less exciting. Yesterday (12th) we picked up the keys to our new home. Addz and I have been living with my parents but it’s time to fledge the nest. It was a busy day, we started by packing up the first lot of our kitchen stuff. Being able to make…Continue reading Day 12 of #30DaysWild – House Move, Ants & a Bee.
Not much nature but plenty of outside today. Just one sleep to go until we get the keys to our new home. With that in mind we headed off to a car boot sale in the search for bargain furniture (thanks for the invite Claire). The early start tuned out to be a great decision.…Continue reading Day 11 of #30DaysWild
In preparation for the house move Addz (my partner) and I spent the day shopping. Both online and in the real world. We’ve been as thrifty as possible but I’ve splashed out a little on Chalk Finish Paint. I’ve dreamed of shabby chic furniture projects for years and the time has nearly arrived. Painting and…Continue reading Day 10 of #30DaysWild – Urban Foxes
Today was largely an indoor day. I’ve tried to get some admin work done ready for the move and I’m actually struggling a bit. As with many chronic pain folks, I struggle with sudden changes of weather. Stormy weather in particular. I recently came across a quote that sums up my feelings rather well. “By…Continue reading Day 9 of #30DaysWild
Playing catch-up and blogging a day late. Nothing much happened. I’m gradually preparing for the house move by spending ridiculous amounts of time searching online for cheap second-hand furniture! I did take some time out to head back to my old high school..it doubles as a polling station. I will highlight the fact that I…Continue reading Day 8 of #30DaysWild
